The Reds toured North America in Brendan Rodgers’ first season in charge and will return to the United States in July as part of their preparations for the new season with mouthwatering fixtures lined up against three teams that are no strangers to Liverpool fans.
Greek giants Olympiacos – visitors to Anfield last August for Steven Gerrard’s testimonial - will form the opposition in Chicago on July 27th. The match, which kicks off at 5pm CST, will be hosted at Soldier Field Stadium.
From Chicago, the team will fly to New York for a game against Barclays Premier League rivals Manchester City at the Yankee Stadium in the Bronx on July 30th. The game, Liverpool’s first in New York for 10 years, will kick off at 7pm EST.
Liverpool’s final group game will see a re-run of the 2005 and 2007 Champions League finals with the Reds taking on AC Milan in Charlotte, North Carolina on August 2nd. The Italians were famously beaten on penalties in Istanbul in 2005 before exacting revenge in Athens two years later when the two teams once again met in the final. Kick-off at the Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte is scheduled for 6.30pm EST.
Should Liverpool top Group B after three games, the Reds will travel to Miami to contest the final of the International Champions Cup at the Sun Life Stadium on August 4th against either Inter Milan, Manchester United, Real Madrid or AS Roma.
Tickets go on pre-sale to Official LFC Supporters’ Clubs and LFC Official Members from 1pm EST (6pm GMT) on Thursday, February 20 until 10am EST (3pm GMT) on Saturday, February 22.
Tickets then go on general sale on Saturday, February 22 at 10am EST (3pm GMT).
